Decorating a Nursery: Finishing Touches with UncommonGoods

*This is a collaborative post.

 I’ve been contemplating how we can add some finishing touches to Q’s Nursery lately, as we hadn’t managed to get it quite finished prior to his arrival.  I’ve spoken previously about how his nursery is decorated in bright white with cream carpet, and a roman blind covering the window.  I recently came across UncommonGoods – a fabulous online marketplace that makes fantastic handmade products available to the wider market.  Their available products range from home decor to art, jewellery to kitchen utensils, and more.

I’m all for changing the blind to something more appropriate than the Union Jack flag pattern and adding some soft furnishings and finishing touches to the rest of the room.  O’s bedroom has been decorated with an outer-space theme, and so I quite like the idea of a seaside theme for Q’s nursery.


I absolutely love the Personalised Adventure Storybook Pillow which would be perfect for a little boy’s nursery and bedroom.  I can imagine Q being a rascal (with a little help from his older brother) as he gets older!  This particular design is created by Patricia Carlin and can be personalised in a variety of ways.  I love that the image on the pillow can be altered to show an infant or young child and that the skin tone and hair colour can be specified.  This is included as part of the Pillow and Blanket range available at UncommonGoods.


The UncommonGoods site has a huge variety of prints and posters available to suit all rooms and requirements, but I especially like this one.  Sticking with the slightly nautical theme, the Sea of Love print by Jacqueline Schmidt would fit perfectly in Q’s nursery.  The monochrome look is right on trend at the moment too!  The phrase underneath the images “Our love runs deep” is absolutely perfect for its purpose to us as we love our babies so very much!


We’ve got quite a lot of books for Q, ready and waiting on O’s bookcase.  Unfortunately, we don’t have the room in Q’s nursery for a bookcase so floating shelves will hold his books instead.  I adore these Sea Monster bookends – again, sticking with the nautical, creatures of the ocean theme.

Are your children’s bedrooms decorated to a specific theme?

  1. These are lovely items! I love that they’re not obviously sea themed and a bit cooler and more subtle. Lamb has dinosaur wallpaper but now lots of avengers stuff! X
